Infographic: Just How Big Is Apple?


In 2011, the gross domestic product of nations around the world ranged from $94 billion in Uzbekistan to $127 billion in Iraq. Apple’s total sales in 2011 were $128 billion. Of the top 20 companies on the stock market, Apple is first, worth $508 billion in shares. This exceeds even Walmart.

Apple sold 3 million of its new ipads in the first 72 hours. There are 11 ipads sold every second. It would take a baby who was born today 82 years to reach 3 million, buying 100 ipads a day. A figure of 56.4 million ipads is slated for 2012. If you drew a line from California to New York, 56.4 million ipads would be enough to cover that line 2 1/2 times.

Since 2008, Apple has sold more than 200 million devices enabled with the IOS operating system. By contrast, automakers worldwide sold 213 million cars during that same period. Apple sold 72 million iphones in 2011 equaling almost the weight of the Eiffel Tower and attributing 40% of Apple’s total revenue.
